Guinea Pig holding festival

Which of these kids, holding or wanting-to-hold a guinea pig, do you think is mine? I’ll give you a hint. It isn’t the one making the Mr. Spock peace sign. Which brings up another question, also a hint. Is it more interesting for a Japanese kid to hold a guinea pig or to sit next to a giant, jolly green foreigner? In Tokyo, it appears, the former. Get out into Japan’s countryside, and I bet it would be the latter.

This photo was taken at the Arakawa Amusement Park (あらかわ遊園), which can be found if you hop off at the right stop on Tokyo’s last remaining street car line.
